Ashram On Park
Ashram On Park, which symbolizes centering in the face of challenge, is a story about 4 friends who partnered in the shadow of COVID and Conflict. We realized that the workplace was changing and, to keep pace our approach needed to change too. Our vision took the form of Ashram On Park. Because we consult on corporate wellness, Park represents Park Avenue in New York, a symbol of aspirational desires and material success. Ashram represents that core of stillness, an inner sanctum. A symbol showing that even, in the midst of the heady rush toward aspirational success, a still, centered core remains a possibility. Ashram represents the eye of the storm, where anything is possible. In the chaos all around, the ability to be internally still, silent, centered, and yet active,enables creation. In Ashram On Park we have over 120 years of combined experience in behavioral science enabling us to guide corporations and individuals in pursuit of internal growth and external harmony on the pathway to organizational and personal success. Ashram On Park presents a vision of a world where spiritual and material harmony interact and are synergistic. It represents the idea that success at work follows from a balance of internal and social wellness. Workplace success is predicated on achieving optimal health among employees and employer systems. Ashram On Park is dedicated to business practices that benefit individuals, corporations and society. We achieve this sustainable goal by fostering internal growth and transformational partnerships.
